I purchased the 1999 Gold edition Grand Prix GT. Now with only 105,000 km that's right no error. I had to have the brake lines from the fire wall back all replaced. Was told Pontiac does not sell complete brake line assembly. That's a days work for the mechanic to install. The car has been undercoated also. The mechanic who did the job replaced all the brake lines in his 1999 Chevy pick-up. Unbelievable! For a 10 year-old car that's not even a daily driver. Now I have a hood release cable that doesn't work when its cold outside. If you can wrestle the hood open, afterward the hood will not close properly. Also I was warned to replace the rubber bush mounts (suspension), both left & right side.
As long as I don't have to spend all my paycheck at the end of the week to drive the car on an ongoing basis.
All GM products are built using the cheapest material. GM is the only manufacturer that uses more plastic than sheet metal on all its cars. All GM products bodies are chopped, channeled, and sectioned smaller. Makes for uncomfortable seating arrangements.
